You were smart to get the insurance adjuster involved as soon as possible. They go through a process of "setting the limits" "setting the reserves" or "the loss" in which they estimate how much the total cost to the ins. co. will be. As long as they end price is less the the amount they reserved then they look good to their supervisors. If anything happens that makes the claim look worse then the adjuster wants to be able to increase the reserves as soon as possible. Taking photos from the beginning is a very good idea.
